Sharing its southern border with Alabama, Lincoln County is known for its scenic countryside. The meandering Elk River, rich fields, and natural woodlands are complemented by it’s people’s southern hospitality. 

The estimated number of county residents in 2020 was 34,369. Agriculture is the largest industry in the county, which is a known top producer of cattle.

Fayetteville is the county seat. A classic sidewalk theater anchors its historic downtown square. Antique, specialty stores and distinctive dining experiences add to a vibrant downtown core listed as an official Tennessee Main Street District. 

Besides a canoe or kayak trip on the Elk River, residents enjoy hitting the fairways at Pebble Creek Golf Course. The Whiskey & Spirit trail winds through the area, stopping at the local distiller’s like Jack Daniels, Southern Pride, and Prichard’s Distillery. 

Lincoln County’s rich history dates back to its founding. Camp Blount is a historic site from the War of 1812, but there are also notable sites from the Civil War. Its gravity-flow water system was the first of its kind in the United States. 

Other Lincoln County towns include Petersburg, Flintville, and Ardmore.
